What does this word mean?

Nephilim.........the verse I was asking about earlier I was digging deeper into and using many translations. I came across this word to describe the children spoken of. Any ideas?

  • As for the giants it talks about them in genesis 6. They were called Nephilim. If you read you will find that spirit/angels in heaven thought that the woman on earth were good looking and they wanted to have relations with them. So the spirit/angels came to earth in human bodies and began to rape/bully people.
    When the angels in human bodies had children with humans they were called nepihlim (gians) they were much bigger than most humans.
    This is one of the reasons god had the flood it killed them all. Also what is realy intesting is when the flood came the angels left the human bodies and became satans demons

  • The nephilim are the gigantic children born to the daughters of man by the angels god sent down to teach us.

  • Technically it means "Those who cause others to fall" but in the Bible they are described as having a larger or "gigantic" stature

  • cont....Whats even more intresting/scary is that EVERY culture celabrates halloween or day of the dead or something to this extent and it has been proven that the flood took place between october 31 and november 6. Note: all cultures celabrate between october 31 and november 26. This is probably/many agree a day that satan has made to morn the loss of his demons/nefilim creation.
    Hope this made sence its all in the bible.
